The Latest Trend in Shorts

One of the hottest trends is the shorts game this season is the high-waist paper bag waistband. What the heck do I mean by "paper bag"? Someone decided that these waistbands, which feature a scrunchy or ruffled elastic waist, resemble that of a plastic bag. Name aside, I never really enjoyed wearing shorts until I tried out this style of shorts, namely the Martha Short, by Cut From The Same Cloth. I kid you not, these are literally the best pair of shorts I have ever owned! They're made with quality fabric, they accentuates the smallest part of the waist offering a flattering silhouette, and most importantly, they are hella comfortable! I've actually worn this exact outfit twice already in the past two weeks. I know I know.. the "Lizzie Maguire, you are an outfit repeater!" scene popped into my brain too. I just cannot get enough of these shorts (and this top, clearly since I keep wearing them together). To add some texture to the ensemble, I've paired the shorts with the Crinkle Satin Top, from Peridot Boutique, which is another piece I've been crushing on. Although I've been wearing them a lot with this top a lot, these shorts are so versatile they could go with just about any top as long as it can be tucked in. So moral of the story is.. if you're like old-me and are generally not a "shorts-person" I suggest you try out this trend because it just might change your mind!
